Great place to visit if you love to eat fresh fish or sushi. Choose from a variety of welcoming shops and restaurants. Fish is also sold in this market but be sure to arrive early as the best fish tends to sell out early in the morning.

Wow, I have never seen so much tuna! Place is very busy, best to arrive early, grab a early lunch as the places to eat become very crowded and you will need to line up to get a table. There is so much to see...More

It's been over 10 years since we last visited Tsukiji, so this year we were disappointed to find that tourists are not allowed in the fish market area until 10am, and there are security guards there to enforce this. By that time, many of the...More

Stopped by the sushi place on Tsukiji market. Rice cooked really soft and right. Crap miso soup was great too.

It's very crowded and food qualities are on the lower side. All merchants displayed their cooked meat products under the room temperature. I saw buckets full of dirty plates and cups that were soaked in dirty soapy water and those buckets were placed along the...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

From Akihabara station to Tsukiji Market station it needs to take 13 mins by public transport where as from Shibuya station it needs to take 26 mins thus Akihabara is closer to Tsukiji Market.
